More yellow lines for Bakers Bottom
A protest against yellow lines in Bakers Bottom has been lost.
The go-ahead was given at a transport cabinet meeting in March.
Local residents in Bakers Bottom campaigned against proposed double yellow lines at the junctions of Rochester Street and Livingstone Street, Bute Street and Livingstone Street, and Hendon Street and Livingstone Street last year.
There had been 26 Objections and 12 items of support to the proposal. The measures were requested by residents via an e-petition and accompanying paper petition signed by 103 people, which was presented at an environment cabinet member meeting on March 31, 2011.
These double yellow lines will reduce the parking spaces for residents, but would improve safety, visibility and prevent obstruction to all road users.
Therefore, it is proposed to proceed with this proposal and all the ward councillors are supportive of this way forward.
